More About This Title C Is for Chicago


Locals and visitors alike will appreciate the beautiful artwork of Chicago’s most popular icons
A is for the Art Institute where the lions stand proud. They guard the precious art inside and welcome the crowd. B is for Chicago blues, the sound heard on the street. Jam with a harmonica and keep time with your feet. C is for Chicago, Second City and Third Coast. From the lakefront to the skyscrapers it’s a city with the most. And so the story goes. C Is for Chicago is a children’s book that explores the history and iconic places of Chicago with clever, whimsical rhymes that inspire the reader to discover the Windy City. It is made for the early-reader set, but the rhymes and illustrations will have all generations of Chicagoans and visitors to the city smiling.
